Lexmark Printer Won't Save Preferred Settings


I just bought a new pc with windows 7. I'm using a lexmark all-in-one x5410 printer which worked fine with windows xp. I downloaded the recommended driver from lexmark.com but they don't have a driver for windows 7 available. My problem is the settings i want won't stick. Every time i print the settings go back to the factory default. The "tech support" (hahahaha!) At lexmark was absolutely worthless. Any ideas? Do i need to just wait for a new driver to be created?

Epson R200 Printer - Custom Print Settings Save

How do i save custom print settings on epson r200 printer in windows 7? I recently purchased a new dell with windows 7, and i have an epson r200 printer. When i go to "advanced" print settings i do not see an option for saving them. For example, when using photoshop i want to save glossy photo paper type, photo print quality, etc. This is annoying because i need to reset them every time i want to print. I used to be able to save custom settings in windows xp.

Compatibility Troubleshooter Unable To Save Settings

I am fighting to get the program cd for my online course to work. I finally was told by their tech support that the compatibility setting should be win98 and not xp which i had on my old computer. After using this setting the program worked fine! But the next time i opened it i needed to redo the compatibility troubleshooter.

I tried to save the settings but it came up with an error: incompatible application! Is this because this is on a cd and it can't be changed? Is there anyway to do something about this. Or if i am going to have to open the compatibility troubleshooter every time where is this located so that i won't have to go into help and dig for it.

Lexmark Printer Error

I got a new dell with windows 7, and i have my lexmark driver for my x4530 printer installed. Everything seems to be working fine. When i print, though, when i click on the printer icon to see its status, it says for the item that should be printed, "printer - error. " I press restart, the driver says it's printing and is completed (through the lexmark software). I've tried reinstalling the software and have tried printing through wireless connection and usb connection. Still isn't working. Any ideas?

Lexmark X4650 Printer Incompatible

I installed widows 7. Found out that one care no longer works with windows 7 installed. So, i installed security essentials. I discovered that somewhere along the way, after installing both, that my printer (a lexmark 4650) was no longer listed as a printer. So, i had to reinstall the software. Still can't get it to print. Cant get the laptop to communicate with the printer at all - usb or wireless, tried both. I've tried reinstalling 3 times now. Tried the lexmark help procedures. No good. Has anyone here had a similar issue with printers, post-windows 7 install, or post-security essentials install?

Cannot Print To Remote Lexmark Printer

I had vista home premium on my laptop from which i could print on an old lexmark x11 attached to another laptop running xp. Recently i upgraded to windows 7 and now i cannot print this way. Although the 7 machine can see the printer, it says it is 'ready' and i see stuff in its print queue on my machine, after a while these items disappear without appearing on the xp machine's queue. The printer shows no activity whatsoever. I have removed the printer from my machine and reinstalled it. Still no joy. The xp machine has extra drivers loaded for "2000 and xp".

Lexmark X543 Printer Wont Print

Trying to print via wireless router attached to lexmark x543 xl printer via ethernet cable. Have run all possible diagnostics and everything appears to be working but it won't print! I have loaded the drivers etc. For my lexmark x543 xl laser printer onto my toshiba satellite laptop running windows 7 home premium in order to set up wireless printing via my bt voyager 2091 wireless adsl router.

The printer appears in the control panel, i have run a successful ping test and can log onto the lexmark device page using the printer's ip address. I have also run the troubleshooter printing diagnostic and it simply says everything is fine and it can't identify the problem. But it still won't print! I have tried the test print page function and it simply ends up in a "queue".

There is nothing wrong with the printer as i can print via a usb cable. There is nothing wrong with the ethernet cable and the ethernet display light on the router is illuminated. Any ideas? It seems to me that the problem might be in windows 7 rather than the printer hardware.

Problem With Lexmark Z43 Printer On Win 7 Pro

Trying to run lexmark z43 printer from windows 7 pro. According to ms it should load a suitable driver automatically and work. It does not. I have old xp driver available on computer (cjxp43le.exe) - latest from lexmark. When previously using vista it found and loaded a z42/43 driver that worked but i do not have this available. Where can i find this driver or can ms forward a copy to me and i will manually force windows 7 to use it. Lexmark (sweden) apparently have a z43 working with windows 7 but seem unable to specify the driver.

Error Message - Cannot Retrieve Application List - Lexmark Printer

When i installed my lexmark x4650 printer i received a message saying "required system software not installed", microsoft.net framework version 2. 0 is required to continue. I went to microsoft to download and got a message that it was already installed on my computer. Now i can't get rid of the message telling me to get the software, (it pops up every time i turn on the computer) and i can't get the printer to scan to the computer.

I get a message on the printer that it  "cannot retrieve application list". The printer prints perfectly fine, but will not scan. I just installed the printer on a new computer and everything was working fine on the old one. The only thing different is this time i am wireless.

Error Code - 0x000006d9 - Cannot Save Printer Share

Two issues - cannot save printer share with error code 0x000006d9 and machine share is not accessible from workgroup network. I am thinking these are connected problems, but here are the separate issues, first - the fundamentals:

4 pc network using work-group with two windows 7 (ultimate) and two xp. All worked well with the previous one vista/ 3 xp network. All but the windows 7 desktop behave well. The network is wired with a cable modem to a netscreen ns 5xt (hardware firewall to the outside and hub for inside), a netgear wireless access point and using (as said before) windows workgroup.

All naming remains correct on all machines, all discovery settings are in place and each has norton internet security for its local protection services. The win 7 upgrades were to the wirelessly connected vista laptop and a hard wired desktop previously running xp professional sp3.conversion of xp was assisted on the desktop by laplink pc mover upgrade assistant. All applications run seemingly well on both upgraded machines.

On the desktop - i cannot share printers. When i use 'networks and printers' from the start menu to set sharing on a printer i get the error code 0x000006d9 stating something like the configuration can't be saved. All local printing works well.

Also on the desktop - the computer name registers to all as on the network (it is discovered and mapped by each pc) but when i try to access from any other machine i get a general error message that states something like 'check your name spelling dummy'. This win 7 desktop can browse the shared folders of all on the network  and write to any.

A little added data - this unit can ping all other in the network successfully but none get a successful ping into the offending machine either with ip address or computer name (times out waiting for a response or says name cannot be found). It can ping itself successfully. It accesses the internet quite handily.

Solutions have been attempted without firewall (norton internet smart firewall - 2010), with firewall and with various permission changes. A final discovery was that the windows firewall will not enable because bfe is not able to start - error 5 - access denied (this was discovered trying to enable a possible solution due to some internet chatter that the windows firewall needed to be running to set up shared printers).

All other dependencies are running making me pause about why bfe is not (it is running on the win 7 laptop as well as is the firewall). Permissions have been checked in the registry for bfe and firewall settings (ports, allows, etc) have also been looked at with a very critical eye. Sfc was run with no problems encountered. All the ports for net drivers, win 7 networking and other shares are opened in the firewalls.

So folks - i have researched the internet and tried many of the suggested solutions to no avail. My apologies in advance if someone provides a solution and i say 'already tried that'.

How To Boot To Preferred Hard Drive ?

Windows 7 on one hard driver and windows vista on another. If i put the vista hard drive into the windows 7 computer how can i boot to the preferred hard drive? I have a floppy disc drive in this computer. Should i look for a third party boot manager sort of program and put it on a floppy? Or does ms have a boot disc application somewhere in the archives?

Or would it be best to format the hard drive that contains windows 7, install the vista hard drive, then reinstall windows 7?

Default Save To Location Reg Key / Save As Location To My Documents

Can someone please tell me the reg key that controls where non office documents get saved to by default when you click save. For most things it defaults to my documents, but what controls that. I am not referring to the places bar, rather the location that comes up when the save as dialog box appears. Currently i have users who when they go to save a copy of a pdf or create one using cutepdf writer it is defaulting to a network location that we'd rather they not save to. I want that save as location to be my documents. If i manually navigate to my documents and save and then attempt to save other pdf docs they default to my docs so i know something has to be keeping track of the change. Can someone help?Os is windows 2003 server and we have a citrix environment if that makes any difference.
